C
I had a friend named

Ramblin' Bob,

who used to steal

gamble and rob

He
F
thought he was the

smartest guy in

town


But
F
I found out last

Monday,

Bob got locked up

Sunday

They've
D
got him in the

jailhouse way down
G
town



He's in the jailhouse
C
now

he's in the jailhouse
F
now


I
G
told him once or

twice stop

playin' cards and

shootin' dice


He's in the jailhouse
C
now



C
Bob liked to play his

poker,

pinochle, whist and

euchre

But
F
shooting dice

was his greatest

game


F
Bob got throwed in

jail, with no

one to go his

bail

The

I went out last

Tuesday

met me a gal named

Susie

F
Said I was the

swellest guy a

round


We
F
started to spend my

money. She

started to call me

honey.

We
D
took in every

cabaret in
G
town



We're in the jailhouse
C
now.

We're in the jailhouse
F
now.


I
G
told the judge right

to his face,

I donít like to

see this place


We're in the jailhouse
C
now
